We’ve learned a TON this past year when it comes to wedding planning, but we’re not the only ones. In fact, venues and vendors who’ve flexed their superpowers with large, grandiose wedding events in the past have learned so much about the beauty of smaller affairs. Red Rock Country Club in Summerlin, Nevada (about 15 minutes outside of lucky Las Vegas), took this year in stride: supporting couples who either had to change their RR event or who found a home in RR after their original plans fell through and embracing a new lease on life when it comes to love and marriage. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young said it best when they sang “love the one you’re with,” but in this case, it’s not about who you’re getting married to (he or she is obvi first choice!), it’s where and how you’re getting married in this still-weird time. But we promise you, if you do go with something intimate at Red Rock Country Club, don’t be angry, don’t be sad, because you’ll be [happy] crying over all the good times that you had…
Smaller weddings can be the key to getting everything you ever wanted
Truth for a second? Microweddings, minimonies, elopements still haven’t been formally indoctrinated into our regular wedding glossary - but we’re getting there, more and more everyday, actually. One of the biggest things to love about these maxed-out-at-50-people parties is that with a smaller event size, you can have a lot more freedom to splurge on the things you never thought possible. Be it an incredible catering menu that would earn the respect of the highest Michelin-award-winning chefs or a selection of exceptional wedding vendors who weren’t even considerations when your list was larger, getting to go big by going small is pretty major.
The other amazing thing about a smaller wedding? You get to celebrate with the closest people to you. No strangers, no acquaintances who you’ll see on the day-of and then never again, no bad vibes across the board. Since you’re keeping tabs on the total attendees and they’re your bests, you have permission to tell them to be on their best behavior (in other words, if you’ve gotta be a bridezilla and tell the crew to keep their drama farrrr away from your big day, then you do you, boo!).
- An outdoor ceremony
- A reception with no more than 50 people
- Great conversation with only your favorite friends and family
- Best night of your life with an amazing meal
I mean, we’d scale back the soiree, too, if it meant that all of the above was guaranteed.
Red Rock Country Club and Its Lead Catering Manager can do just that.
Gina Putnam has rocked Red Rock Country Club’s Director of Catering role for more than 13 years, and when it comes to her weddings, she serves up a luxury experience just by being there and showing up for her clients. Her first priority is always to make authentic connections with her couples and their families and friends, prove effective in planning and recommending vendor partners that will go well beyond their calls of duty, and above all, give her soon-to-be-weds the day they’ve always dreamed of. To Gina and her talented team, your wedding - big or small - is not just a date on the calendar, rather, it’s the beginning of a journey where you as a couple become one, your families unite, and you get to celebrate with a wonderful day.
Just a few things RRCC can ace for you:
Gorgeous and spacious locales outside to secure all those socially-distanced photos with your squad.
Reception planning that ensures tables are appropriately distanced apart.
Introductions to best-in-class wedding talent in the greater Las Vegas area (the pros who have mastered everything to do with microweddings: i.e. florists who can design all-star floral centerpieces for spread out seating arrangements, stationers who can make suggestions about on-plate ‘thank you’ notes to guests, etc.
An atmosphere that feels safe, but also special and spectacular.
The Red Rock Country Club team believes in the beauty of intimate wedding connections between you and your very important people, so absolutely reach out and loop them in on your love story.
